House will hold hearing on sexual harassment settlements next week
House Speaker Paul Ryan addressed the series of sexual harassment allegations that have been plaguing Congress, and announced that the House will hold a hearing on the (taxpayer-funded) harassment settlements next week. Congress is introducing legislation this week to mandate sexual harassment training.
Key quote: "Sexual harassment has no place in any workforce, let alone in Congress," said Ryan. "We cannot and we will not tolerate that kind of behavior."
